Ready to face the summer? Are you prepared to face the concrete jungle of London or the cities of the UK in the sunshine? Has that tiny little three day heatwave knocked your skin into a tail spin? As a massive skincare obsessive and skincare blogger, it’s something I really want to drive home to you all. And Nivea are helping me in the chic way they know how…
Nivea Urban Skin
The first line of skincare in Summer for me is defence and then detox. With all the heat, sweat and dirt that manages to cake into your face – not even thinking about the diet changes of the summer… extra alcoholic beverages, not-so-healthy food, bbq smoke, you know what I am sayin’ – the summer can be a hard time for your face!
The sun is a massive contributor to early ageing and skin damage so early defence is so key to keep your skin not only looking but feeling young!
Urban Skin Defence Defence Day Care serves to both protect and moisturise the skin on your face. It’s that first step in the day of keeping your skin happy!
I’ve been using this amazing moisturiser in the morning after I brush my teeth and before I apply my make up. It sinks into your skin really well without leaving you feel greasy or oily!
I am loving the Urban Skin Detox Mask for a quick-one-stop cleanse of my face. I use it either in the shower or bath of an evening or do it while I am brushing my teeth before bed. It is such a luxurious feeling mask that isn’t too heavy or sticky on your face. It applies really easily and it comes off like a dream! It’s totally changed up my beauty attitude to mud masks – I used to be that girl that would spend hours drenching my face in thick, gloopy mud masks and then wondering why my skin isn’t recovering when I try to scrape it off.
This Detox Mask is so quick and easy to use and even if you apply it and keep it on for a matter of minutes like I have been, your skin will still feel the difference!
My pores have felt much more cleansed and my entire face has felt cleaner since using it and I defo accidentally caught the rays on my face last week – so it’s a win from me!
Night Gel Cream has been something I’ve been avoiding for a little while. Yes, I am a beauty blogger and yes I am only 25 but I was told last summer that I need to start using anti-ageing products on my skin. Namely over night creams. Not gonna lie to you, I was hella offended by this. But, I’ve gotten over myself and realised that if I still want to be getting ID’d in Tesco buying strawberry cider, I’ll need to try to preserve that baby face look I’ve got going on!
The Urban Skin Detox Night Gel cream is incredible. It smells gorgeous, you can literally see it plumping your skin as you apply it and I’ve woken up the next morning looking dewy, fresh and well, quite pretty actually!
It’s totally switched up my night time routine and almost a week in of trialling the product, I am almost out! I am slathering this little beauty on my face like there is no tomorrow!
Favourite skin care item of 2018 so far!
Just to sweeten the Summer skin care deal, I am loving this Love Sunshine Shower Gel that is a day at the beach in a bottle! Summer lovin’? It’s chocked full in this bottle! It keeps your skin feeling refreshed and moisturised, it’s packed with Aloe Vera and you can use it on the daily.
This little number is being taken away on my Summer holiday for those sizzling summer showers!
